This AUD recording epitomizes the very best of the Grateful Dead "live sound" for the time. The prototype Wall of Sound is nailed by Alembic and the sound crew for this show. Set within an outdoor Stadium, this close-up infield FOB spatially captures sound from the two Aux PA towers on the infield, behind the taper. This sound delay adds a touch of ear candy as it rolls around the stadium. June 9 was my first time taping. June 10 was a Modal Spectacle. These shows at RFK Stadium were by far the best sound I ever heard come out of a PA System, period. It was a sensational orgy of sound.
Matt Smith did a great job transferring these tapes of mine! Thank you!
